#DecolonizeHistory is about interrupting space, addressing colonial roots and undoing processes of white supremacy.
Historical narratives are most often presented without the context of colonization, slavery and imperialism despite the huge role they play on all aspects of life.
Hoping this project raises awareness about injustices towards Trayvon Martin, subject to a system of racism that never served to protect his life, Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen arrested and detained in Guantanamo Bay when he was only 15 years old, and Assata Shakur & Huey Newton, labelled “terrorists” for actively resisting systemic racism on stolen land.
This is the beginning, there are so many more narratives to be shared and #DecolonizeHistory aims to illuminate the role that processes of colonialism continue to play out in society.

Believe it or not but…I’ve had this jacket almost 7 years and I’ve NEVER washed it. So all the sweat from every party, stroll off and step show is still on this jacket. BUT WAIT! The jacket has no funky smell, the letters have no stains, AND the SO1O is STILL bright white. I was about to throw it in the wash just now but I decided not to. Why? Because this jacket is a reminder of the “OTHER” uniform I never washed, marching into the “horror of the shade” every single night…ALL my love to Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated.
